Banks are the worst in the world for funding fossil fuels
£8.2 billion for more coal?The UK's top five banks continue to support the world's dirtiest and deadliest fossil fuel, coal. Wait what?
Did we all just forget Paris?Barclays is Europe's biggest funder of fossil fuels, and HSBC is not far behind. Together they've poured £185 billion into new fossil fuel projects since 2016. The total grows every year.
Every bad project has a bad bankFrom pipelines to coal mines, the Amazon fires to the Arctic, banks are propping up the projects that violate Indigenous and community rights, harm health, and ruin our future.
If banks continue to fund fossil fuels, this makes Barclays and HSBC just as responsible for climate chaos as BP and Shell.
